If you love peaceful holidays and exquisite natural beauty, welcome to Baviaans Lodge

Nestled amongst wild olive, white stinkwood and yellowwood trees you will find the wilderness retreat of Baviaans Lodge. The lodge is situated in an indigenous tree-filled valley as it enters the Kouga mountains which form part of the Baviaanskloof and has been built from local natural stone in keeping with a traditional country lodge.

Enjoy a glass of wine from our country pub and listen to stories and folk tales of the wilderness area and kloof that makes a visit to the lodge so special. The warm hospitality and friendly staff of Baviaans Lodge will ensure every moment of your stay is unique and memorable. Enjoy superb country style meals freshly prepared and served from the farmhouse kitchen in the romantic setting of the lodge dining room.

Natural stone cottages provide comfortable accommodation, each with a fireplace providing warmth in the winter months. A large fireplace in the main lodge, with yellowwood beamed ceilings and stunning natural stone and wood floors, is the perfect place for guests to relax in the evenings. Baviaans has no electricity or cell phone reception, so enjoy quiet evenings by candlelight and paraffin lamps. The main lodge runs on a generator in the evenings and DStv is available in the pub for sports fans. We also offer a stunning campsite, for the outdoor experience enthusiast. This is more suited for the summer months due to the cold winters we experience in the Kouga mountains.

Activities include walks and hikes, river rafting, 4x4 trail adventures, nature experiences, bass fishing, outdoor boma and camping, game trail experiences, bushmen art trails, and cultural experiences.

We enjoyed our stay at Baviaans Lodge very much. Rob was the perfect host.

10 January 2014

Rob Le Roux, the owner, looked after us so well, as I have special needs. The Lodge is charming and rustic, and to be served, cooked for, and generally cared for by the owner himself was very special. Baviaans Lodge is for getting out of the rat-race, slowing down a few gears, and enjoying nature away from screens, phones and noise. Being a good walker is an advantage, with lots to explore of the unspoilt wilderness.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Baviaans Lodge. Accommodation was very comfortable and clean, food was prepared with care and hosts were welcoming and kind. Natural surroundings were beautiful and peaceful. Would love to go back again.

Had lots of fun. The food was excellent. Ron and family was excellent. Accommodation was good and fairly priced (thank goodness for fire wood) it was snowing on the mountaintops. Thanks to Robert and Mugabe (Rhodesian ridge back) for keeping Maddox and Makayla (grand children) entertained. The route to Baviaans Lodge is really worth the trip if one appreciate some off road challenges. THANKS ROB it was "Lekker"
